You are give two integer S and D denoting source and destination of Zeno's journey, his vehicle travel every half of the remaining distance and take rest for 2 Minutes. Your task is to find time taken to reach the destination if possible.
The only main point was to find out that he will never be able to reach his destination.
As it is given that his vehicle travels half of the distance and takes rest. Every time he always travels half of the distance. So even if he is left with a distance of 1 he will travel half i.e. 0.5 , then again half i.e. 0.25. So it will never be exactly 0, i.e. equal to D. so unless the distance given between source and destination is 0, he will never reach his destination.
This question is based Zeno's Dichotomy Paradox
